A former Kentucky postal worker is sentenced to six months in federal prison for failing to deliver about 45,000 pieces of mail. Brent Morse stored the mail at his late mother's home and in rented storage facilities near his home and mail route in western Kentucky. A U.S. attorney said most of the mail was meant for about 250 homes over a two-year period. Morse was not charged with stealing the contents of the undelivered mail. But he was ordered to pay restitution to two businesses that mail commercial flyers. The Postal Service has since delivered the recovered mail. So why did he do it? A postal service spokesperson says Morse wanted to pick up his kids from school every day at a certain time.
